Bob Menendez trial: Judge warns both sides of ‘too much gamesmanship’


A federal judge on Monday warned attorneys on both sides of Sen. Robert Menendez’s (D-NJ) bribery trial to keep the theatrics at bay and to “operate in good faith.”

“There’s been too much gamesmanship here,” Judge Sidney Stein said ahead of jury selection in the high-profile trial. “Everybody has to operate in good faith here. I’m not sure I’ve seen that.”
